Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I hate talking about myself so I'll rewrite this properly later,
but for now I'll leave it as follows.
I spend my days working mainly in accounts. I say mainly because my
job is more diverse than just number crunching and book
When not working I like to go out a few times a week(not
"socialising", I don't drink), reading(prefer non-fiction to
fiction, there's just so much to learn), being convinced to take
part in strange and potentially lethal activities like Sky
diving(sky diving itself doesn't really interest me but you need
hundreds of jumps before you can use a wing suit so I'll be
starting down that path this summer) and spending more time than I
would like to surfing the net.
Until then, here's a few things I like in a partner:
Intelligence is incredibly attractive (as is a geek streak)
Confidence in what you do
Light-hearted teasing and playful banter
Vulnerability is endearing, combined with inner fire is
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Finished studying for now. I suprise myself daily with the amount
of random useless facts I can remember. I'm like Sheldon Cooper but
without the social skills.
Considering a degree, but unsure of whether to pursue something
more useful for a career like Law; Business or Economics; Accounts
(it's my job, I already have a qualification and there's far less
reading involved than Law), or to study something more for my own
interest like music; engineering; or Chemistry(I loved it during my
sixth form days, although my practicals were always a danger to
myself and others).
I'm also planning on starting my own business. I've got quite a few
ideas of what I'd like to do just need to work out some
I fancy skydiving this year as well.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Using colourful language at inappropriate times;
giving advice and then not following it myself;
saying things then realising they sounded different in my
one or two things I'm probably not allowed to mention here, naughty
remembering miscellaneous crap(song lyrics, rules to games like
Warhammer that I've not played in 15+ years, whole sections of
film/TV dialog) in place of things I really should remember;
being slightly concerned at the number of people who seem to be
proud of their borderline alcohol dependency;
making jokes out of everything;
not being able to think of anything I'm really good at.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
I've never considered it. Probably the shaved head.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Books: Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy, and the 3 others in the
series. It also has the accolade of being the only (series of)
fiction book(s) that I can remember reading. I generally stick to
non-fiction as I like to learn.
Movies: The Lost Boys; The Princess Bride; Fast Times At Ridgemont
High; The Goonies; Legend; Innocent Blood; Highlander; The
Shawshank Redemption; Stand By Me; anything by Kevin Smith; and so
many others. I love horror films(I have all the Alien films and the
special edition of Predator) and just about anything from the 80's.
My guilty pleasure is 50's scifi B-movies and creature
I'm also going to include TV here: The Big Bang Theory; Mock The
Week; QI; NCIS; Mythbusters; Monk; a cartoon from my childhood
called "The Mysterious Cities Of Gold"; Peep Show; Skins; Quantum
Music: Most modern music is crap so I tend to listen to older
stuff. I like individual songs rather than bands, and only tend to
listen to music in the background as I'm doing other things. That
said, I do like Cheap Trick; Queen; Metallica; Iron Maiden; Muse;
and probably quite a few others too.
Food: I love ice cream with hot chocolate sponge cakes. And
cheesecakes. And the Oreo Cookie Cake at Buddies. I really like
chocolate too, and so many other unhealthy snacks and foodstuffs I
wouldn't know where to start. I'm told I make very nice cookies,
and my cheesecake isn't bad either. I'm not a fan of vegetables
(I'll eat potatoes but apparently they don't count), and the only
eggs I eat are made of chocolate. I currently have an obsession
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
My family, my friends, The Internet, food, orange and pineapple
Yes, I know that's only 5. Clearly I'm a rebel and I'm sticking it
to the man. Take that the man.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
So many many things, for example:
Why are BMW/Audi/Mercedes owners even allowed to drive? Why does Dr
Sam Beckett insist on having loud conversations with Al, who only
he can see, when there are other people close by? What shape would
a circle be if pi was exactly 3? Why do women need so many pairs of
shoes? Seriously. What's with all the shoes? Are you all
stockpiling in case there's a shortage?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
doing the same thing I do every night Pinky, trying to take over
I'm probably at home, on the internet or reading a book. I've tried
going out, but to be honest I can't think of anything less
interesting to do than to go clubbing. Especially when you end up
with a bunch of people trying to convince you that you need to add
alcohol to your drinks. I have however developed my
"finger-up-the-bum" argument just for this situation.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Nothing really springs to mind, but that's probably because I
already know all of my secrets. Your secrets are far more
interesting to me. Like that thing you used to do that nobody else
knows about. Yes, that thing.
You should message me if
Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You're not quite the usual "clubbing every Friday/Saturday night,
drinking till I'm sick" type;
You're willing to accept my family tradition of roast chicken every
you want to;
you're open to my spur of the moment ideas like going for a walk in
the middle of the night, or deciding to spend the weekend at some
hotel or similar I've just happened across online.
